Your wedding day. It’s arguably the biggest day of your life, so you’ll want it to go perfectly. You may already have chosen the venue and read all the wedding tips about flower arrangements, seating charts, and menus. Perhaps you’ve found the dress and tuxedo and picked out the bridesmaids’ dresses. Everything is going to look beautiful. But what about your eyes? Seeing your wedding clearly is a must, and with glasses or contacts, you have another hassle on your hands. Here are the top 5 reasons why you should get LASIK before your wedding:
- You’ll avoid wearing glasses in your wedding photos. Years later, when you look back on your special day, you’ll be gleaming in the photos without your glasses obstructing your look.
- You’ll receive a confidence boost. Many people who have had LASIK say their confidence has increased since the procedure. Who doesn’t want to feel their best on their wedding day?
- Losing your contacts on the big day could be disastrous. Imagine scrambling around the floor of your hotel room trying to find a contact when you have a million other things to do!
- You should make room for the tears of joy. You won’t want your eyes swimming in contacts or tearing up behind foggy glasses. In addition, contacts can dry out your eyes, which makes for some uncomfortable blinking.
- You want freedom on your honeymoon. Without glasses or contacts, you can look forward to water sports, swimming, and beaches galore.
If you’re considering getting laser vision correction, one big advantage is it doesn’t take long to recover. You can get the procedure and be back planning your wedding, or even walking down the aisle a couple days after the procedure. You will have appointments a day and a week after the procedure, so it’s probably best to give yourself a minimum of a couple weeks before the big day.
Remember, your wedding day is yours to have and yours to remember, and LASIK can make the day even more memorable. Wedding tips often concentrate on how the day will look, but with laser vision correction you can concentrate on how you look and how you see. Congratulations!
